Chargers | RB not in San Diego's draft plans?

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 20:50:05 -0700

San Diego Chargers RBs Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Danny Woodhead comprise the team's current group of running backs, and head coach Mike McCoy said during the NFL Annual Meeting that he believes they can win with the three guys they have now.

Chargers | Search for RB continues

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 18:01:47 -0700

The San Diego Chargers remain in search of a fourth option at running back after RB Ryan Mathews turned down their one-year contract offer in favor of signing with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this offseason. The agent for Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was dismissive at the notion of any potential trade to the Chargers Wednesday, March 25. The Chargers seem likely to address the need via the NFL draft. Only RB Danny Woodhead, RB Branden Oliver and RB Donald Brown are under contract for 2015.

Fantasy Tip: As things currently stand, expect Oliver to be the workhorse on the ground, while Woodhead could be a decent option in PPR leagues. Brown possesses the least fantasy value as of now, but things could change drastically during the draft and/or training camp.

Chargers | Looking for another RB

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:11:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers RBs Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Danny Woodhead remain on the team's roster, but the Chargers are expected to look to add another running back after losing RB Ryan Mathews to the Philadelphia Eagles. San Diego is a candidate to look to draft a running back early in this year's draft to compete for a starting role.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead to take things slow

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:46:08 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) planned to be ready for full workouts in around 12 weeks but will take things slow since his season is over.

Fantasy Tip: Donald Brown and Branden Oliver will handle the running back duties until Ryan Mathews is able to return. Brown likely will receive most of the work and could be a fantasy option against some matchups.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead going on IR

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:52:13 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after he suffered a broken fibula during the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Donald Brown will be the starting running back until Ryan Mathews is able to return. Brown could be a useful option depending on the matchups each week. Owners could consider using Brown this week since he is facing the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Chargers | Branden Oliver may see more time

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 02:47:56 -0700

With injuries to both RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and Danny Woodhead (ankle/leg), RB Branden Oliver could see more playing time going forward with the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver would be a clear No. 2 to Donald Brown assuming Mathews is out for a while. Woodhead may be done for the season, so owners wanting a backup for Brown should consider Oliver as a handcuff.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead done for season?

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 15:19:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle, leg) suffered a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula in the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills. A source said Sunday, Sept. 21, that season-ending surgery is likely.

Fantasy Tip: With Woodhead done, Donald Brown will see more touches going forward. If Ryan Mathews remains sidelined, too, Brown should see a bulk of the carries, would be a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in leagues of 12 or more teams. In FantasyScore, he is an intriguing pick, especially if the price is right, as he faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.

Chargers | More tests for Danny Woodhead

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:41:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) will go for further tests Sunday, Sept. 21, night in San Diego, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead was carted off in the Week 3 game in Buffalo, which was a pity for fantasy owners who were hoping for a bump with Ryan Mathews inactive. Donald Brown had a career-high 36 touches, mostly after Woodhead left. He is one to target if Woodhead misses time.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead injury update

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:15:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) suffered a right ankle injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Woodhead probably will not return since he was carted off the field. Owners will need to wait until after the game to get a better idea on the severity of the injury.
